“I will live by my highest realization of myself, never less.”
You’ve come so far. You’ve learned so much. You’ve grow from your challenges. Now life throws something else in your way. And you question yourself and your ability to best that challenge.
The assertion of the life long Journeyer is to never go backwards.
To hold themselves as capable and strong to the best of current abilities. Not to hold themselves as a lesser, past version of themselves.
In life’s path, The Journeyer will live by the highest realization of themselves, never less, even when life tries to push them down.
